Using url shortner to track traffic
« on: January 31, 2013, 08:20:09 AM »
Hi everyone

As you may already know url shortners are nice and easy way to track how much traffic is coming to your web page from specific location(s).

If you don't know about url shortners this is what is all about - If your web address is www.yoursite.com you can go to some url shorting service and put your web addres there and it will give you link like bit.ly/wetwf

Than you post your links online (facebook, twitter  forums, blog comments...) and on url shortner site you can see how much clicks you get over your shorten link. This is how you can see what traffic sources work best.

Here are some popular url shorting services:

bitly.com - very nice and easy

su.pr - service from Stumble Upon(they say that it can increase traffic)

goo.gl - this is Google's service

awe.sm - This one is not free. It is 30 days trial and than $15/month. I didn't try it but they say it can track conversions also

What services do you use and what are your experiences?
$6.1 MILLION for 27,530 people in 5 months -Serious, nice and like they say- proof is in the pudding
